I have configured several Kiwis for wifi access by attaching an inexpensive router configured as a Wifi client to the ethernet port of the Kiwi. This $25 TP Link has worked well for me: https://smile.amazon.com/TP-Link-Wireless-Portable-Travel-Router/dp/B00TQEX8BO/ref=sr_1_14?keywords=tplink+wifi+router&qid=1548188019&sr=8-14 In principle one could enable the internal BB Wifi or attach a USB wifi adapter, but I am reluctant to fiddle with the Kiwi's OS.

  • wsprdaemon - A Raspberry Pi WSPR decoding service

    I have just checked in V2.6b to https://github.com/rrobinett/wsprdaemon where you will find installation and upgrade instructions.
    Among other improvements, this version addresses an upload problem which may be causing WD users to pound the wsprnet.org database.
    So I strongly encourage existing user to upgrade to V2.6b

  • wsprdaemon - A Raspberry Pi WSPR decoding service

    I have made antenna comparisons at KPH by configuring the second antenna system to log spots as KPH/N.
    Then Jim's site shows a comparison by band of the two using: "curl www.wa2zkd.net:8088/today.html | html2text | grep KPH"
    More detailed comparisons can be made at Phil's excellent site: wspr.vk7jj.com/"

  • Length of time before a new WSPR listening station's noise graphs appear on wsprdaemon.org?

    I'm glad to see that you figured that out and you find the graphing useful

  • wsprdaemon noise graphs

    Sorry that I missed the questions in this thread, but I have been dealing with the aftermath of the Northern California extended power outage at KPH.

    The optional DEFAULT and following band-specific parameters affect only the noise level and noise graphs. If present, they are comma-separated 'BAND:ADJ" pairs with 'DEFAULT:ADJ' (which should be first) applied to bands for which there is no 'BAND:ADJ' definition.

    They are there to allow you to adjust the noise level reports for any gain or loss in the transmission system.
    For example, if you have a +20 dB LNA ahead of your Kiwi, then 'DEFAULT:-20' should be added to your Kiwi's receiver definition line. DEFAULT:0 adds 0 dB to your measurements, so it will have no effect on your reported noise levels.

    I support band-specific adjustments, since at many (if not most sites) there will be elements in the RF transmission chain which change the gain by frequency.
    Get at $50 NanoVNA and check out your rx system from antenna feed point to the Kiwi's SMA input. You may be surprised.

  • Fixing broken kiwirecorder installation [fixed now]

    No problem. It works now and I appreciate your quick response.
